IMMIGRATION | Issued on January 8, 2019
Donald J. Trump
President of the United States
📌 This crisis is only worsening as 2,000 inadmissible migrants arrive at our border every day and overwhelm our immigration system.
🔹 We do not have the resources needed to hold them, and legal loopholes and activist court rulings prevent authorities from promptly returning them.
🔹 Immigration courts are overwhelmed, with a backlog of over 800,000 cases.
📌 We must secure our border to protect our communities and make sure no more Americans fall victim to crimes committed by illegal aliens.
🔹 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has arrested 266,000 aliens with criminal records in the last two years.
🔹 This includes aliens charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults, nearly 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 violent killings.
📌 Deadly drugs are flowing across our borders, taking far too many American lives.
🔹 300 Americans die every week from heroin, 90 per cent of which comes across our Southern Border.
📌 We are facing a humanitarian crisis as human smugglers exploit our immigration system for profit and drive migrants to make the treacherous journey north to the border.
🔹 1 in 3 migrant women is sexually assaulted on the dangerous trek to the border.
🔹 20,000 migrant children were illegally smuggled into the country last month alone.
📌 The Administration has requested $5.7 billion for construction of approximately 234 miles of a new steel barrier on the Southern Border, a $4.1 billion increase over the Senate bill.
📌 To protect our communities, the Administration requested $675 million to deter and detect narcotics, weapons, and other materials crossing our borders.
📌 Among the Administration’s requests for more resources are:
🔹 $211 million to hire 750 additional Border Patrol agents.
🔹 $571 million for 2,000 additional ICE personnel.
🔹 $4.2 billion for 52,000 detention beds, personnel, transportation, and detention alternatives.
🔹 $563 million for 75 additional immigration judges and support staff.
📌 The President is calling on Congress to stop the political games and come together and address the crisis we are facing.
📌 Congress has a responsibility to protect the safety and security of the American people and it needs to meet that responsibility by providing the funding needed to secure the border.
